A blue dragon can cast create water at will (CL 22). Alternatively, it can destroy an equal amount of liquid in a 10-foot burst. Unattended liquids are instantly reduced to sand. Liquid-based magic items (such as potions) and items in a creature’s possession must succeed on a Will save (DC 27) or be destroyed.
A very old blue dragon is surrounded by an aura of electricity. Creatures within 10 feet take 1d6 points of electricity damage at the beginning of the dragon’s turn.
A very old blue dragon can make itself appear to be in two places at once as a free action for 22 rounds per day. This ability functions as project image but the dragon can use its breath weapon through the mirage.
Environment warm deserts
Blue dragons are consummate schemers and obsessively orderly. In combat, blue dragons prefer to surprise foes if possible, and are not above retreating if the odds turn against them. They prefer to lair near those that they control, sometimes even within the confines of a city.
